Our packagers are not drooling idiots. If they are, they should not be
sponsored. If you can't understand a simple suggested layout, with provided
examples, perhaps you shouldn't be packaging for Fedora.
I will not support draconian approaches to packaging though. Silly things
like this should be a packagers choice. Things that really matter, like the
release string, or other such fields that are parsed should have rules.
